So the other day I got an issue of Rolling Stone magazine with Pope Francis on the cover. That struck me as odd for a couple reasons.
First, why is Pope Francis on the cover of Rolling Stone? Did he start a band?
Oh man. That would be hilarious if the Pope started a band. That’s a universe I want to live in.
Second, why am I getting Rolling Stone magazine? I never subscribed. But there is was: my name and address on the sticker.
This has actually happened to me before. A few years ago I got Working Mother magazine for six months.
Yeah. I am not kidding you. Same deal: my name was on it and everything. And believe me, I definitely didn’t subscribe to that one either.
Anyhow, I decided to check my credit card history just to make sure I hadn’t been charged for a magazine I didn’t order. I didn’t find anything about Rolling Stone but I did see a different charge I didn’t recall making.
